Scary events will happen soon in Nigeria– Okikijesu drops fresh prophecy

The Christ Apostolic Miracle Ministry’s Apostle Paul Okikijesu has warned of a serious security situation in most parts of the country.

According to the cleric, who claimed to have received direct messages from God, Yoruba land, Igbo land, the Middle Belt, and the Northern part of the country all require proper security at this time to prevent certain events from occurring.

According to him, if enough protection is not provided, a series of inexplicable incidents will occur, making people fearful of being in public spaces.

“This mysterious event will not be limited to kidnapping; but it will be more severe than kidnapping,” he said in a statement to newsmen on Friday.

“The event will make people afraid to discuss in their homes; or even use their cell phone to discuss with other people. These scary events will start very soon; if adequate security is not provided for the country, then people will be mindful of their speeches.

“People should pray for this nation starting from the Office of the President to the Senate, to the House of Representatives. People should also pray for the banking sector, oil and gas sector, foreign sector and every other sector, because all the sectors in Nigeria need supervision.

Missing child: Appeal court frees Prophet Babatunde of Sotitobire church

The Court of Appeal in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, has discharged and acquainted Alfa Babatunde, the founder of Sotitobire Praising Chapel in Akure, who was previously convicted by the state High Court in connection with the disappearance of a one-year-old boy, Gold Kolawole.

Kolawole was abducted in the church by an unknown person during a church service in November 2019. Defendants were then apprehended by men from the Directorate of State Security and charged in court on two counts of kidnapping and aiding and abetting kidnapping.

In 2020, the lower court, presided over by Justice Olusegun Odusola, sentenced Babatunde and five others – Omodara Olayinka, Margaret Oyebola, Grace Ogunjobi, Egunjobi Motunrayo, and Esther Kayode – to life imprisonment for the two-count charge.

However, the high court judgement was upturned as the appellate judge, Justice Hammah Barka, said the circumstantial evidence upon which the lower court based its judgement was not enough to convict the appellants.

As a result, he discharged and acquainted the appellants.

In his reaction, the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Charles Titiloye, who is also the prosecutor, said the state government would study the judgement before deciding on the next step to take on the matter.


He said,” The court has affirmed that DSS can investigate any case and does not have a jurisdictional problem to investigate a case like this. However, the court has stated that the circumstantial evidence upon which the conviction was based upon at the lower court is not enough to sustain the conviction of the defendants. Our attitude from the state is that we study the judgement and take the proper steps we are supposed to take on the matter.

The counsel to the appellant, who was represented by Akinyemi Omoware said the court judgement had shown that truth would prevail over falsehood.

“It was held that the appellant was not found culpable of the alleged offence. He is not guilty as pronounced upon by the trial court. We are using this medium to tell the members of the church and the general public that they should rejoice with conscience. They should not go out causing problems. They should take it that, that is the will of God. We are happy about this,” the counsel said.

Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria’s vice president has disclosed that the country’s problems will increase if it breaks apart.

This was stated on Thursday by the vice president when members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo support group visited him in Abuja.

“We must never relent in ensuring that we keep to the ideals of the country and we don’t lose sight of what we are trying to achieve here,” he said.

“People who suggest that the country breaks up, whatever may be the reason for their views, are certainly not correct and we must say so to them at every turn.

The governor directed the Commissioner for Health, Prof Augustine Umoh, to ensure the distribution of the donated items to all government hospitals and public places across the state.

Umoh, on his part, reassured that in view of huge investments the governor has made in the health sector, the state can tackle the threatening new virus, as it were in the earlier waves.

He said though the state government is playing its part to contain the disease, the people should also play theirs by observing the precautionary measures of COVID-19.

The President of Saraya Japan, Dr. Saraya Yusuke, represented by Pascal Dike, said the company has been into health and hygiene products since the 1960s in Japan.

He said the donation was not only part of efforts by the company to show support to the government in their fight against coronavirus but to establish their presence in Nigeria.

Taking power will be difficult if youths remain spectators, says Yahaya Bello

Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has stated that the quest of young Nigerians to take over power will remain a tall order if they remain “political spectators”.

This was stated on Thursday by Bello while speaking at the national youth summit in Abuja.

Bello said the youth do not have an excuse not to lead the country.

Represented by Jamiu Abdulkarim Asuku, his chief of staff, the governor said the young people must begin to see themselves as critical stakeholders in governance.

“Youth no longer have any excuse not to take the lead,” he said.

“We are not just youthful, we are useful and purposeful. This is the time for you to mobilise yourselves and begin an advocacy for youths involvement in governance.

“Most of you sitting down here are above 30 years of age. At 32, General Yakubu Gowon was already head of state. He fought the civil war just for Nigeria’s survival as an indivisible and united entity.


“General Murtala was also pretty young when he became the Head of State and he also made meaningful contributions to the development of our dear state.

“The youth must begin to see themselves as critical stakeholders whose time has come to take over the leadership of this country.

The governor said the youth should use 2023 to “craft the Nigeria of our dreams”.

Bribe-seeking Lagos policemen shoot woman, brutalise husband for complaining

Police officers allegedly shot fashion designer, Rukayat Salami, in the stomach at a checkpoint at Lucky Fibre, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos state and battered the husband, Ibrahim for complaining about the shooting.

It was gathered that a tricycle operator had wanted to pass the checkpoint when an argument ensued between him and the cops over N100.

The matter reportedly degenerated as the policemen opened gunfire. In the ensuing melee, bullets hit 34-year-old Rukayat in the stomach.

According to PUNCH, the victim, who had been bedridden since the incident happened last Sunday, said her husband had driven past the roadblock when she was hit by bullets.

“I started shouting and alerted my husband. Immediately, he placed his hand around my stomach and observed that I was bleeding. He parked the vehicle, went to start arguing with the policemen. By the time he returned, he was bleeding in the head,” she added.

Ibrahim, a surveyor, said the policemen brutalised him for calling their attention to his wife’s condition.

He explained that the incident happened while they were returning from a visit to an in-law, adding that despite he and his wife bleeding profusely, the policemen abandoned them and drove away in a minibus.


The father of four said, “The incident happened around 8.30pm on Sunday when we were on our way back from my in-law’s house at Agunfoye, in Adamo, Ikorodu. We approached a police checkpoint and saw policemen collecting money from commercial drivers plying the axis.

“The tricycle operator at my front was reluctant to pay the N100 or N200 to the policemen, so what the policemen did was to pass me while they argued with the operator. The policemen were four; two monitored vehicles going toward Itokin, the other two monitored vehicles going to Ikorodu.

“As I drove past the checkpoint, we suddenly heard gunshots and my wife started screaming that she had been shot. She started shouting that she needed water, but as I stretched my hand to examine the side of her stomach, I observed that she was bleeding.

“I quickly parked my vehicle, got down and went to meet the policemen to tell them that they had shot my wife. While writhing in pain, my wife was telling me to be careful so the policemen won’t shoot me. The policemen and I engaged in a shouting match until one of them used a heavy object to hit my head and I started bleeding.”

The Kwara State indigene said he rushed his wife to the Ikorodu General Hospital, from where she was transferred to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for surgery.

While lamenting that over N150,000 had been spent on Rukayat’s treatment, Ibrahim demanded the arrest and prosecution of the policemen involved in the incident.

He said, “When I rushed my wife to the emergency unit of the Ikorodu General Hospital, she was stabilised. The following day, my wife was referred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, but they rejected her because of bed space.

“We informed officials of the Ikorodu General Hospital. But while returning there, one of the officials called and told us to go to LASUTH, where a bed space had been secured for us. She was admitted there and we did an X-ray which revealed that two bullets were in her system.

“They also said blood was in her chest; they told us to buy some medicine and other things they needed. After we got them, she underwent surgery. They removed a bullet from her body, but the second bullet was not removed as the doctors said it would be suppressed with antibiotics.

“My wife has spent five days in the hospital. I reported the case at the Sagamu Road Police Station and was told an investigation would be conducted. I want those policemen to be prosecuted.”

A picture seen by our correspondent showed that Ibrahim’s right eye was swollen after the attack.

A bullet extracted from Rukayat’s body was also sighted.

The couple said they would present the bullet to support police investigation into the incident.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said he would get back after getting a brief on the incident.

He had yet to do so as of the time this report was filed, PUNCH reports.

73-year-old Kenyan man drags son to court seeking 20% of his salary for upkeep

A Kenyan man, Gideon Kisira Cherowo has moved to court seeking to have his son surrender 20 per cent of his earnings for his maintenance.

The 73-year-old man, from Biirunda in Trans Nzoia County, claims that his 48-year-old son Washington Chepkombe Cherowo abandoned him despite having contributed to his education until university level.

In the papers filed at Kitale High Court, Mzee Cherowo, stated that his son does not send him any upkeep even though he is currently working at the Kenya Airports Authority.

Among his four children, Mzee Cherowo said, Washington is the only one who is currently employed.

“I used all the resources I had to enable the defendant to be in a good position so that he can help us. Right now, my wife and I are in a horrible state yet we have a son who is working,” the plaintiff said in a civil suit at the high court.

“I sold my land in Cheptais, Bungoma, to educate him from primary to university. I also gave him a quarter of an acre. I even went ahead to pay dowry for the defendant’s wife, which cost me four cows and some amount of money, whose sum I cannot recall.” the aggrieved father said.

“I pray that since he has a good salary, I request 20 per cent of his salary to be given to me as the father,” Cherowo pleaded with the court.


The case could develop into a precedent-setting affair as upkeep is normally reserved for minors and there is no clear-cut directive on how children, who become adults, should take care of their parents.

Mzee Cherowo, in the November 17 petition he filed personally, attached a testimony from one David Masyek Cherowo, another one of his sons, who also maintains that his brother should relinquish a part of his salary for his father’s upkeep.

“The defendant deserted his parents after he got a job. It is now 17 years since we saw him. He does not come or send any assistance to us. We are leading a very horrible life after the defendant consumed the very thing our father had, so as to take him to school,” Masyek said in the statement.

Doctors said between 50 and 60 people tested positive for coronavirus after the party last week at a restaurant in Oslo, according to the Norwegian state broadcaster NRK.

The doctors said the infections were not delta variant cases, and that there were “clear clues” and a “strong possibility” they were all the omicron variant.

Tine Ravlo, the assistant chief infection control doctor in Oslo’s Frogner district, said a preliminary screening of the cases’ samples showed it was likely it was omicron.

“There are no absolutes. I may agree with some people on certain things does not mean I’m in alignment with them.

“So, if I walk with the governor today, it does not stop me from criticising the governor the next day.”
